Unlike most of the old town, this passage is all about rough stone and beautifully dark medieval vibes, There's also a nice stained glass workshop.

A stroll down this passage way gives the person the feeling of going back in time. The stones on the wall are ancient tombstones that were discovered on the floor of a building, This was one way of preserve the history.
